Sharp Responses to the London System

Does anyone have ideas for sharp lines or gambits to play against the London system? I like playing 1.d5 to play against the queens gambit, but it's pretty frustrating to play against the London system because it's such a slow opening... I'm looking for something more exciting to play in 3+0 or 1+0 games. As long as it's not dead losing I'm open to it.

*I'm currently playing 1.Nf6 and it works for me, but I'm looking for responses to the London system.

Black plays d6, g6, Nd7, Bg7 in any order and e7-e5! Even LS book authors don’t recommend LS against this setup and go for the Modern or Pirc.
